Continuing Education for Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Providers

Continuing Education Physical Therapy

The Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE) provides continuing education courses for physical therapy providers who work partially or primarily with orthopaedic patients.

Highlighting the latest techniques in rehabilitation, pain management, and patient education, FORE’s courses offer physical therapists strategies for treating patients who have sprains, strains, tendonitis, ligament or muscle tears, inflammation, post-fracture injury, joint pain, or special postoperative needs.

At FORE’s orthopaedic conferences, physical therapists will learn how to implement the latest injury management techniques and therapeutic modalities into their day-to-day patient care. Topics may include pediatric rehabilitation, biologic treatments, osteoarthritis care, and rehabilitation for sports injuries. At select conferences, physical therapists can also participate in hands-on workshops designed to introduce and familiarize participants with new techniques and technologies.

Although physical therapists are welcome at all FORE courses, the continuing education conferences that most prominently feature physical therapy-related topics include:

  • Tampa Shoulder Course, held in Tampa, Florida
  • Evolving Concepts in Orthopaedic Trauma, held in Park City, Utah
  • OrthoVirginia Soccer Medicine, held in Leesburg, Virginia
